Healthy Airport Meals

Yesterday was a nightmare travel day.

I got stuck in the Aspen airport due a delayed flight. When I landed in Denver I had to make a mad - and I mean MAD! - dash from one end of the airport to the other.

Thank goodness for the Turbulence Training lifestyle - I made it with a minute to spare - actually, I even had a minute to grab a snack...see below.

Fortunately, yesterday was an off day from workouts...and that mad dash was enough to hit my "active lifestyle" target.

I was also well-prepared...prepared to avoid the bad eating that could have happened at the airport. In fact, here are my meals from yesterday:

Breakfast
- omelet with vegetables
- grilled fish & peppers
- fruit (pineapple, raspberries, blueberries, watermelon)
- V8

Lunch
- Grilled chicken salad (2 breasts)
- jimaca, salsa, black beans, avocado
(I substituted the salsa for the dressing)

NOTE: Lunch was eaten at a Mexican restaurant. I said "no thanks" to the chips and salsa. So there you go, proof that you can eat healthy when you eat out.

Airport Snack during my delay in Aspen
- Raw cashews, red delicious apple, raw almonds

Airport Snack during my transfer in Denver
- Apple, banana, raw almonds

Without my preparation and fitness, I would have been outta luck, and stuck eating M&M's (the peanut kind, of course) and old sandwiches and might not have made my connection.

The lesson is to always be prepared. To help you, I have a great nutrition resource I'll be giving you later this week that has helped me carve out my six pack abs...

...but for now, let's focus on getting you prepared to workout for fat loss. Here are the secrets:

1) You must have a structured workout plan. You can't expect to get results if you just "wing it" in the gym without a plan.

2) You have to increase the intensity. I spoke with over a half a dozen clients this weekend about the importance of DROPPING the normal cardio and adding interval training to get more results.

3) Attack the Fat Burning Hot Zones of the body. These include your torso, your upper body pushing muscles, your upper back, and your legs.

You can even use the TT workout of the Month, "Hot Zone Fat Loss", to make this easy for you.

Alway be prepared,
